ITA OnTheFly No Longer Available;
Existing Installations Will Cease Working 31 Dec 2017

Google purchased ITA, and chose to drop OnTheFly. Some functions are failing already, and Google / ITA is no longer supporting the app.

Note for users of OnTheFly:

ITA Software's mobile flight-search app OnTheFly is no longer available and existing installations will no longer work after December 2017. You can still search for flights using ITA's technology here on Matrix. Or try Google Flights on mobile to find the best fares wherever you are.

rt1flea has posted a possible interim workaround to download OnTheFly again if you have had it installed on your iPhone previously in post #15.

Thanks to codyc1515, davedeboston, innesst, rt1flea and sokolov.

You can roll back the update, although it is a procedure not for the faint hearted.

PSA: TURN OFF auto-updating of apps and operating system in the iPhone.

Let someone else be the beta testers.

I know that the ITA app won't work from 1 January but is it still possible to download now? I've recently updated my cell phone and I can't seem to find it in the Google Play Store.

Updated to iOS 11 this weekend and now I know why Flight Matrix doesn’t work. Phooey. Website interface is too “fussy” for iPhone 6, but works okay on iPad.

Been enjoying the site and app for well over 6 years now, sad to see it go.

I’ll echo the question: anyone found a good replacement? (Search 2-3 destinations and can sort out by desired times of arrival/departure...)
